TGIF everyone! Today our president Donald Trump attended the funeral of anti-LGBTQ televangelist tycoon and presidential spiritual adviser Billy Graham, and wowee it looks like he had a helluva time while he was there! Talk about putting the “fun” in “funeral!”
If you click on the picture in the top left-and corner, you will see that it features Donald and Melania Trump, as well as Vice President Mike Pence, standing next to Billy Graham’s casket and grinning wildly.
Listen, people mourn in different ways, and sometimes funerals really are joyous moments of celebration and reunion. But seeing as how Trump couldn’t stop flashing that signature stupid grin while visiting the first responders in Parkland, just days after a deadly school shooting, I’m going to wager that Trump and Melania are smiling because it’s their Pavlovian response to a photo op, even when they’re surrounded by death. Literally. Billy Graham’s casket is right there!
Trump joined about 2000 other people at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, where Graham’s son Franklin delivered a passionate speech about how his dad and how people still need to convert to Christianity. “The world with all its political correctness would like you to believe there are many roads to God,” Graham said, according to the Washington Post. “It’s just not true.” That’s certainly one way to grieve!
As our eternally smiling president once eloquently and tenderly said, “REST IN PEACE BILLY GRAHAM!”
